[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] [RFE] Dynamically owned directory structure (#780)

I just wonder, if RPM could provide some facilities to create the directory structure in more flexible way.

Currently, the filesystem package in Fedora has ~1MB. That is quite a lot. Installing the package, it probably consumes even more inodes. I just wonder, if there was a way for RPM to know that the package owns some directory, but actually not create them immediately, unless they have some content.

Apart from filesystem package, I can imagine that could help for example SCLs, where we have to replicate the filesystem package, but the replica is incomplete and it is even more problematic considering speed [[1]] and occupied space.
